“Ohio Buckeye is a slow growing tree native to Pennsylvania and Nebraska and reaches heights over 40 feet. It is a drought adaptive tree and has minimal insect and disease problems.
It is considered an excellent choice for many landscapes because of its beautiful early orange foliage.
Buckeye candy, though, doesn’t have any ingredients from the fruit of the tree, but is made to resemble the tree’s nut. These candies are a popular treat in Ohio, especially during the Christmas and college football seasons. Buckeye fruits on the other hand are poisonous to cattle and humans because of their high tannic acid content.
